Gubbio, Italy

Last year at this time I was in Fabriano and Florence, Italy.  Today I decided to paint from one of my photo's that I took in Gubbio, Italy,  a view looking down the valley.  It was mid-afternoon when we arrived in Gubbio and had about an hour free time to explore.  Needless-to-say, I didn't make it very far on the main street.  I was looking at all the shops and stumbled into a book binding shop.   The owner/artist was rather friendly and told us about her shop, how she made books and leather goods, and where she was trained in Rome.  I bought a ostrich backpack and a glass dip pen from her.
